hi guys, just a few questions re this unit

did they ever update the AF motor on this one from the very first version that came out

Not that I've heard. That would typically only happen with a new model designation.

re image quality, how much better is the 2.8 IS v2 compared to this one?

The difference is considerable, especially on a high pixel density APS-C, not as much on (for example) a 5D Mk I.

But for hand holding, the latest generation IS can make a world of difference, depending upon specifics, maybe even a larger difference than the improved optics.
